Description: Mai has been helping out her childhood friend, Kunimitsu, every morning with football practice ever since they were little. After years of practice, Kunimitsu has been MVP 2 years in a row at the middle school nationals. One day, Reika - one of Kunimitsu's admirers - witnesses the two childhood friends practicing, and is shocked by Mai's ability to keep up. Determined to prove herself to Kunimitsu, Reika challenges Mai to a football challenge!

Caught between her childhood crush and new competition, will Mai be able to hold her composure? With a tendency to get too nervous or fantasize about Kunimitsu, Mai has a hard time playing football outside of practice. Can she stop her lewd fantasies long enough to beat Reika? [Kamas]

If you play against a player that is superior to you in any aspect it is really dificult to understand how they do what they do, even more so if you are up close, some things arent more easy to understand up close adding the adrenaline rush of Reika, her anxiousness and the fact that even with her talent she still a novice.

 

Plus the fact that this is a manga the author has some space for exagerations.

As someone who stepped into the ring once with someone way above my skill level in a fight, I literally thought this dude grew a third arm and punched me in the back of the head because I swear I didn't see either of his hands move.

for a split second, I read the chapter title as "striker's pantsu". I am deeply ashamed.

So true, while it feels like shounen power up stuff it's actually very real that it feels like you have no idea how they do it when you look at someone far more skilled and experienced than you currently are.

Simplest explanation I think is going to watch someone who is truly skilled at digital art. Watch them do a quick 30min demonstration with some skilled use of textures and strokes. You are left with the feeling that you don't really get how he did what he did even though you just watched him do it.

Well, at least it's not as bad as battlefield baseball.

Yeeep, shounen levels of power creep...

It seems like author pulled a fast one here. I mean are we still playing football or crossed into chi/energy/chakra dominion? Because if reika can't understand what happened while watching it from upclose as a victim of dribble and on the side as observer, then please god tell me wut?

New favorite.

"Kijiyama Unions"
Looks like we just met one of Kijinan's starters.

Momofuji a best.

 

Also, that was an interesting match and I'm really amused the cheating girl is now "friendly" with Reika. Huge tan girl loving kids and letting them win was a really nice way to humanize her after the match and was pretty funny.

Double dose of gyaru, what a lovely way to the day!

a dog, a lion...that was anything but a cavalry battle, more like a circus!

More yuri! You must give me more!!

 

So, anyway, it's moving to Young Animal Arashi?

 

If I recall correctly, Young Animal Arashi is the adult erotic-oriented version of Young Animal. It published "Nana to Kaoru: Black Label" for example, which was raunchier than the original series.

 

So, maybe we won't get two chapters a month, but the author will have more time to make longer chapters and more freedom to skirt the line of hentai (and less censorship).

 

A win-win?

Honestly, the fan-service in this manga being so light and fluffy does it good and there are few manga that have naked bath scenes and sexy butts everywhere where I don't find it...titillating? It's just like the rest of the manga, just fun and cute and I don't really feel like it's trying to get people to wank off to it or get boners. It's just a very light and nice feeling to it.

 

If it gets more lewd or he ups the fan-service or makes the fan-service more...exploitative? Fuck, it's hard to think of an appropriate word...crude? Blatant? I think this manga will lose a lot of it's appeal and feeling. The tone will change significantly. Keep the fan-service to a nice aside every now and again with cute girls being fun and cute and then focus on the silliness and faces and hardcore ball action.

A while a go I read the first chapter and it seemed that the couple was gonna be KunimitsuxMai, now that I've finally come to read it I'm seeing comments of ReikaxMai, is the manga really hinting at it or is it just another case of fans shipping characters?

 

it's just a case of fans reading too much into the character's interactions.

 

But it's fun, because the straight ship is boring : Kunimitsu is portrayed like an herbivore who won't ever make a move. I mean, what 15 year old would keep it in his pants when surrounded by girls who practically throw themselves at him?

 

Overall, this is not a manga about romance. This is a manga about a soccer girls team, in the tradition of nekketsu, each with a distinctive personality, with lots of fan service, among which the "yuri" is used, because it's cute. But I don't think it will be conclusive with the romance threads, either straight or gay.

 

Well, for now I enjoy the ride, because I like how the girls are drawn and the yuri fan service is cute. And the single male MC is not even central to the story.

I'm sure next chapter comes the startling news of Kunimitsu's injury due to his loss of stamina playing with them, causing the girls all the more resolve to win the tournament.

you know i'm pretty sure that romance tag just means the romance of soccer and the romance of friendship now

I really like the detail in the last panel that Mai and Rika are holding hands with intertwined fingers while sleeping. I ship them so much.

Ty, and Keep up the good work.

 

And I ship all of them.

But that is kilometres offside. How blind can the ref be?

he BS with teleporting a defender next to kiiro 

And suddenly, two very weird new ships are born. But I approve!

Someone tip a delivery guy, cause I just love that serving of EXTRA THICC!

BATH TIEM NOW?!

Are we finally off Namek?

More yuri! You must give me more!!
